William Jason Mills, 38, has been chargd with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, burglary with a battery, criminal mischief, assault on a law enforcement officer, and resisting arrest with violence.
According to the Calhoun County Sheriff’s Office, Dep. Jody Hoagland responded to a home on SR 71 South after a report that Mills was at the home armed with a knife and tearing up the house. Mills allegedly approached Dep. Hoagland in the driveway in an aggressive manner with blood on his face and his fist clinched. He was ordered to the ground, reportedly resisted and the Dep. Hoagland eventually applied his Taser to stun Mills. With assistance from Cpl. Eddie Dalton and Ofc. Leo Marlowe, along with Paramedic Aaron Carter, Mills was placed in shackles in the patrol car where he kicked the doors.
Witnesses alleged Mills had come to the home to threatening to fight a man. A woman at the home said they were watching a movie when Mills forced his way inside the front door. Mills allegedly grabbed the woman and struck her in the face. A physical altercation ensued between Mills and the man at the house.
Windows were busted out and the male received a cut to his right hand and lip from a knife Mills was allegedly wielding. When the man fled the home, Mills reportedly followed and chased him with a weed eater from a neighbor’s yard. Mills then allegedly went back inside the home and did more interior damage to the residence. At some point, the male’s vehicle parked outside was also damaged.
A bloody 10-inch knife was recovered from the scene.
During a post-arrest interview, Mills reportedly stated, “Wait till I get out and you will see, I’ll finish her.”
